12 TEACHER CERTIFICATION COURSE CATALOG Field Experiece It is the mission of the iteachlouisiana program to meet the needs of individuals who have a desire to become highly effective teachers, while also meeting the needs of school districts to obtain highly qualified teachers. Field Experience is an important time in the life of a teacher. It is critical, challenging and rewarding to all involved, as it is a time of great professional growth. This experience typically has a lasting effect upon a teacher s outlook toward teaching and therefore greatly affects future generations of students. We offer two routes for completion of the Field Experience: Close Relationships with School Districts > Job placements may be obtained in any school district or LOUISIANA Education Agency (LEA) recognized private school > Districts can search our database to find teachers > Customized instructional coursework for school districts 12

13 iteachlouisiana Standard Certification in Six Months > Receive your Standard Certificate in half the time of other certification programs by taking advantage of our Clinical Teaching option. After only one semester, you could be issued your Standard Teaching Certificate. Internship You will complete a one-year (two semester) paid internship during which time you are employed full time as a teacher in your content field. In this position, you receive the salary and benefits of a first-year teacher. A long-term substitute position or Teacher Vacancy Position does not fulfill this requirement. You must secure your own Internship position through the district application/interview process. Currently, there is not a shortage of PK-3 teachers. Since it is most difficult to obtain a PK-3 teaching position, we encourage you to be flexible and open to additional content areas, such as the 4-8 single subject areas. Also, in today s market, you must make yourself as marketable as possible. Additional certifications can rank you above other new hires when Administrators are deciding between two or more teachers. Prior to interviewing, you are required to complete 80 hours of instruction (EDTC5000 and EDTC5100). Once you obtain an Internship, you will be enrolled in the Field Experience course, Field Experience: The Classroom Teaching Experience. This course provides detailed information for the newly hired teacher. You will be required to submit self-reflections and classroom reflections during your Internship. Supervision During Field Experience During the Field Experience period you will be assigned a Field Supervisor who will make periodic classroom visits and work closely with the campus administration to ensure a successful teaching experience for you. Also, by state mandate, each school district must provide an on-campus mentor for the beginning classroom teacher. Often the first-year intern is expected to pay the school district for the mentor teacher, typically via a personal payment plan. As costs and arrangements may vary from district to district, we recommend asking your hiring school district for its policy for mentor teachers.
